Cell Biologist explains how the heart conveys identity

The sacred heart is a recurring symbol in my work. I grew up with an indoctrinated connection to the image of the sacred heart, but its purpose in my work is personal and intuitive. The sacred heart represents a core aspect of personal identity, self-understanding, and self-discovery. It is symbolic of an iconic cultural heritage that conveys immense suffering, but it also represents freedom from temporal affect - as forgiveness or acceptance. It can represent the value inherent in a significant scar, or it can symbolize surrender to a quantum flow. ~MLB
